Biggest factory in the BAT Universe requires a lot of machines and to maintain these machines requires a lot of catalogs and documentations. One of the key goals of the operations function in BAT is to increase efficiency and decrease machine stopping time due to maintenance and spare changing. From locating the catalog manual to replacing the spare, it takes a lot of time as there is no automation.
We developed a robust platform available as web, android and iOS application which was named Module Buddy. The application contains all the catalogs of the machines in modules. Through the application one can easily navigate to the required part of the machine and directly request for spare as all the parts are listed digitally in the system connected with R&RS.
The application enabled changing in the present diagrams to adapt to changes made in the machines and the parts involved. It has resolved the problem of missing physical catalog and reduced 75% maintenance time. Module buddy is made to be the one stop solution for managing the machines and the modules efficiently.
